Weekend Favorites: 6.24.16

Weekend favorites are back! Grab a cup of coffee and get click happy with my favorite links from the past week. Recipes, new products, and more!

Hi! I’m back with weekend favorites and I have to apologize for missing the last two weeks. Unfortunately the internet on the cruise ship wasn’t the best so I’m sorry to leave you hangin’!

Oh by the way, I cut 9 inches off my hair. NINE INCHES. I love it and plan on going shorter next week because after that I won’t be cutting it for a very long time.

This weekend: I’m heading to Boston today to hang out with some of my favorite food bloggers and have a girl’s getaway weekend. Be sure to follow me on Snapchat (username: ambitiouskitch) and Instagram to see all the food I’m eating.

Next week: I’m doing a fun cooking demo event at Williams-Sonoma in Lincoln Park (Chicago) and would LOVE to see you there. The event benefits the Chicago Children’s Choir and is next Wednesday June 29th from 6:30-8:30. It’s completely free, plus they’ll be good food (by me) and cocktails! Hope to see you there.

Oh and guess what? Tony and I are headed to Mexico for a little romantic vacation over the 4th of July. How American of us, right?! Regardless, I’m SO excited to bask in the sun and get away from writing for a bit. I’m calling it my post Summer Sweat Series vacation. Putting all that stuff together for the SSS takes a lot of work, and I’m due for a real relaxing non-work vaca on the beach with a giant margarita IV in my arm.

Alright, enough from me! Let’s get to the favorites. There are some really good ones this week, so get click happy:

I am straight up obsessed with RXbars. New favorite 3pm snack. TRY THEM!

I tried this pumpkin honey mask yesterday and my face is now bright and beautiful. Seriously in love.

Mexican cauliflower rice. I imagine this would be fantastic with Puerto Rican beans.

How terrific are all these removable wallpapers? Want to do it in my bathroom!

This trick ripens your avocado in 10 minutes. SAY WHAT?

Overcoming the fear of not being good enough. Simply a wonderful read because I know so many can relate. Also kinda want to write my own post about this.

I want this pizza in my mouth right now. !!!!!!!!

Ready to dive face first into these breakfast bowls. Just because.

Jessica might be my soul mate after making these banana cream smoothies.

Dying over these vegetarian SLOPPY JOE stuffed sweet potatoes. My kind of food.

 

Okay, that’s all I have for you. As always, thanks for being here. You’re simply the best. xo!
